Except for her receding gum line on one tooth, this patient had a beautiful new smile following her orthodontic treatment. Recession of the gum line is a complication that sometimes can occur with orthodontic treatment. Fortunately, it can be easily fixed.


Connective tissue grafting restored the health and beauty of this smile. Using a microsurgical procedure, connective tissue was harvested from her palate and grafted over the weakened tooth. Our patient was amazed at how comfortable and easy the procedure was.
